Deals To AVOID (Wedn): Sony WH-1000X M3 ANC/BT Over-Ears for $232

This is a daily deal of a different kind. This is a daily deal TO AVOID! Among the NewEGg daily deals for Wednesday September 16 in 2020 there’s a sale on the Sony WH-1000X Mark III for $232. The “to avoid” part is NOT on the headphone but on the seller. The seller is an unknown Newegg Marketplace seller with a 83% score on 65 ratings. That’s not something that inspires confidence. This also raises the questions whether this is a USA warranty product, or an international grey-market…

Speaking of the Sony wH-1000X series, their brand new Mark IV (M4) model is now in-stock and ready to ship for $350 at various authorized Sony dealers including Adorama and Amazon [ALWAYS check who the actual seller is before buying!] and B&H Photo and such…

EU: Shure SRH-840 Closed Over-Ears for 105 euro

Shure may surely sound like a Germanic type of company that goes along with the Sennheiser-Beyerdynamic-AKG trio, but it was actually founded in Chicago. But mayhaps to attract the European audience, as of the time of writing, their new condition closed-back over-ear studio-y SRH-840 headphones are on sale for 105 euro at Amazon Germany, sold and shipped by Amazon.de actual, not iffy marketplace sellers…

This is part of the well-known studio-y line-up starting with the lesser known 240A, then the formerly-frequent guest in the “$100 recommendations” SRH-840, then the SRH-940. There’s also the “new line-up” with the 1XX0 that has both open and closed headphones…

The pre-launch of B&H Photo’s Labor Day offerings includes some consumer-tier headphones, among which you can get a $100 ANC/bluetooth over-ear combo, if you don’t want to get into the $300 “Battle of the Giants” but also don’t want to buy from the non-audio budget brands around $50 at Amazon and such…

To cut a long story short, the new condition Sony WH-CH710 is on sale for $98 with free US shipping for a limited time at B&H Photo. As of the time of writing it averages 4.5 out of 5 based on 19 customer reviews…

I haven’t seen or touched this newer model, but we have here a text and pictures un-boxing of the previous-generation model, the WH-CH700N {the PORG is not included ~ it is our “blog pet”}.

One utilitarian and welcome difference for many, when looking at the B&H gallery pictures, the new WH-CH710N has USB-C charging, finally doing away with good old micro-USB.

Speaking of which, I hope there is a recycling program for all the millions and millions of de-commissioned micro-USB cables 🙂

PS: buying from B&H you are guaranteed to get the US model. Some of the marketplace sellers on Amazon are not as reliable, but if you are comfortable with that, a couple of them are selling it for the same price with some freebie accessories (eg stand, case, etc).
